EPISODE 244 We’ve all been there, in an interview, when it starts to go all wrong.  It’s often not your fault, but you can still turn it around if you know what to do. Learning how to read the situation, the interviewer and knowing what you’re able to influence are skills you will learn in today’s episode.

 

QUESTION OF THE DAY
“How do I end a conversation with a senior person?” -James, Alaska

ANSWER
Use opportunities to introduce yourself, make sure they get to know you, the job you do and who your direct manager is. Have a short, great conversation and walk away leaving a good impression, they will love you!

  1. Don’t interrupt at the wrong time.
  2. Don’t talk too long.
  3. Ask for one small thing.
  4. Don’t ask too many follow-up questions.
  5. Help them walk away.

 

STUFF WE LEARN IN THIS EPISODE

Top 5 Interview Behaviors to Avoid

  1. Lying. Don’t do it. Even if you think you can get away with it, you’ll get caught!
  2. Answering your cell phone or texts. Turn your phone off and put it in your bag.
  3. Appearing arrogant. Being a diva makes you hard to work with.
  4. Dressing inappropriately. This is an issue for all genders. Don’t be distracting.
  5. Blaming others for mistakes. Always take responsibility.

Body Language

  1. Make contact.
  2. Smile.
  3. Don’t play with things on the table.
  4. Avoid fidgeting in your seat.
  5. Keep open body position.

When you notice an interview taking a turn for the worse there are a couple of things you can do. If they look bored, insert some personal stories that are short, sweet and to the point. Rambling will only make things worse. If your answers aren’t resonating then stop the interview, redirect and restart. Being honest and open is the best way to change the interview. You may have a chance to save that interview!
